Fans of the Metal Gear Solid series have been waiting for quite some time for the next main entry of the series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Feeling their not so phantom pain, Hideo Kojima gave fans of the series a first taste of the open world experience of Metal Gear Solid V with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, released last year in all regions on consoles and PC.
The release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been somewhat controversial due to the price of the game and the very short length of the main mission, which can be completed in just a few minutes if the player knows what he’s doing. This controversy has made more than a few fans skip the game and just continue waiting for the full Metal Gear Solid V experience.
Those who have skipped Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes may be able to play the game alongside Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain without having to buy it separately, according to a rumor circulating online. Reddit user LoveDeterrence has discovered a promotional image, which has surfaced on the Konami Official Website, featuring both games. The URL for the image on the website, now no longer available, featured the world “bundle”. The Japanese company has yet to talk about this potential Metal Gear Solid V bundle at the time so we must treat all this as a rumor for now. More news on the matter will surely come in soon and we will keep you updated as soon as possible.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC this September. The game will be set nine years after the events of Ground Zeroes, detailing how Big Boss will turn from a legendary war hero to the villain Solid Snake had to defeat in Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
